To be fair I only see youtubers doing that when the trolls and toxic assholes come out to play.
I don't blame them, youtube comment sections were always absolute shit. I remember how old youtube was and it wasn't much better then what you'd see today.
Maybe, maybe not. A big company trying to break into an existing market operates very differently from a company grown from scratch in that market. Youtube is basically the only name in their market because they created that market, but that also means they've made a lot of mistakes along the way and ended up beholden to advertisers.
It's by no means guaranteed, but there are a number of ways that pornhub could create a youtube killer. First step would just be to study youtube's history and see where they went wrong.

Yeah. Reading the comments is a nightmare since I feel like whoever wrote those comments are very ignorant or down right racist. I remember reading on one news video about the White Helmets aid group from Syria where they and their families were evacuated to the UK out of the UK government fears that they would be executed by the Syrian government for helping the civilians injured in rebel held areas (plus being potential witnesses to disprove that it was the government and not the rebels that used chemical weapons).
From a rational person, they would go "Oh thank God our government save these brave heroes from those no good Syrian war criminals". But not on that video! Almost every comment had racists accusing them of being members of IS or how the government let terrorists into their country.
But just when I think people are just Dumb or horrible, I find some comments that give me hope. During one video which reported about Saudi Arabia banning one episode of the Netflix show, "Patriot Act with Hasan Minaj", which was critical on the Crown Prince and his actions, one smartass tries to prove that this show how "Muslims can't takes jokes and criticism which proves how horrible they are", only to be rebutted and made fun everyone since they point out to the smartass that the report had nothing to do with Muslims but was about the Saudi crown prince didn't like the show reported the corrupt things he did and the fact the host was a Muslim himself, making the whole "Muslims can't take jokes/criticism" moot.
On a different note, the ads are getting weird again. Yesterday, I was watching a video and the "ad" before it was just a DC Superhero girls short (it was skippable at least). Ironically enough, the video it was attached to was an MLP short.

That's nothing. Sometimes i would get ads in Spanish. One time I got one in French. A few times I would get ads for guns and gun accessories, something I actually wrote to Youtube to request they stop. ..... and I never saw those since!
After Machinima Shutdown, Rooster Teeth Revives ‘Inside Gaming’ and Rescues Other Machinima Shows
Rooster Teeth is housed under Otter Media, the division of AT&T’s Warner Media. Under a reorg late last year, Machinima had moved from Warner Bros. to Otter Media — before 81 Machinima staffers were laid off in January. Machinima also disabled its You Tube channel and moved its creator partners under Otter’s Fullscreen group.
Now, Rooster Teeth is rebooting “Inside Gaming,” a daily news show about games that was once Machinima’s most popular franchise, and will be home to a collection of Machinima titles, including “All Your History Are Belong To Us,” “Titanfall Dropout” and “Boss Battles.”...
But more most importantly Sonic for Hire is coming back with an 8th season.

A pediatrician exposes suicide tips for children hidden in videos on YouTube and YouTube Kids
Apparently some idiots' been splicing kids shoes with clips of Filthy Frank in the middle of them and uploading them to youtube kids.
That is objectively horrible.
Of all people, Filthy fucking Frank?
Sounds like a 4chan "prank"
Who the heck?
Youtube has started playing TWO ads before a video now.
YouTube bans comments on all videos labeled for children by default.
Probably a smarter move than demonetising creators for comments.
I'll stand by YouTube for this one, as long as it doesn't overstep the boundaries of just... like, the stuff specifically targeted to kids.
Moderation is one thing but after the bot-generated video scandals I can't imagine there's a shortage of videos out there that it'd of been otherwise easy to target kids with.
For once Youtube did something that I can't immediately jump on as a bad idea.
Anituber Sea Tactics has gotten 3 copyright strikes and is holding a livestream before his channel dissappear
Maybe parents shouldn’t use youtube as a babysitter?
.... I am oddly okay with this. Children can't be trusted to post civil comments online, let alone ones with proper grammar. I mean they're tempermental in real life as it is.
Honestly, I wouldn't trust adults to post civil comments online any more than I would trust children to.
The children weren't the problem. The Pedophiles were.
Maybe pedophiles should not go to spaces where they know children are and get help.
Pedophiles who are looking to cure/manage their pedophilia are a very different problem than pedophiles who are still active predators.
Not arguing that, I am arguing that this is not the parents fault in this case that some creepers are actively going into childrens spaces.
I am saying those creepers need help, not that they are looking for it as its very obvious they aren't
I’m not sure if anywhere online can be called a “children’s space”, it’s a public space with children sure, but it’s not a space for kids and kids in it should either be accompanied at all times or taught how to safely navigate it and avoid/identify dangerous areas/people.
Also I’m not entirely convinced that people uploading videos of children should be able to monetise them without complying with child labour laws, I’ve always been uncomfortable with You Tube vlogers using their kids as props, most workplace won’t let you make your child a key part of how you do your job, You Tube shouldn’t be different there.
